About the Book



Luke believes he has his life figured out…and then he meets Theo.

It should have been simple—a summer spent with his girlfriend Zara at her family’s holiday cottage in Cornwall. Seventeen-year-old Luke Savage jumps at the chance, envisioning endless hours of sunbathing on the private beach and riding the waves on his beloved surfboard. He isn’t interested in love. Though his rugged good looks and lazy charm mean he can have his pick of girls, he has no intention of falling for anyone.

Nothing prepares Luke for his reaction to Theo, the sensitive Oxford undergraduate who is Zara’s cousin and closest friend. All at once, he is plunged along a path of desire and discovery that has him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself. No one, especially Zara, must find out; what he and Theo have is too new, too fragile. But as the deceit spirals beyond their control, people are bound to get hurt, Luke most of all.

Caught Inside was named a finalist in the 29th Annual Lambda Literary Awards for Best Gay Romance, the 5th Annual Bisexual Book Awards for Best Young Adult Novel, and the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Best LGBT Fiction.

Luke’s Summer Playlist

Thanks so much, Addison, for inviting me here today as part of the anniversary blog tour for my debut release, Caught Inside.

One of the things that made Luke such a fun character to write was his refusal to conform to any stereotype. First and foremost, he’s a surfing fanatic, and is every bit as cool and laidback as you might expect the stereotypical surfer to be. Yet, beyond the shaggy hair, he doesn’t exactly look the part. As well as being a wave junkie, he’s massively into heavy metal music, so instead of the typical board shorts and tank tops you might imagine him to wear, can usually be seen sporting ripped jeans and band T-shirts.

In tribute to Luke’s love of rock and metal, I’ve put together a playlist of some of the tracks you might have found on his iPod over the summer. During the course of the story, he struggles with every emotion from wild happiness to impotent anger and weary sadness, and this collection of songs reflects that. I hope you enjoy browsing, and if you’d like to share some of the music you enjoy listening to when you’re in a particular mood, I’d love to hear it!

About Jamie Deacon

Author Bio


Jamie lives in a tranquil spot close to the River Thames in Berkshire, England, and has always been just a little out of place—the only redhead in a family of brunettes; an introvert far more at ease with dogs than with people; a connoisseur of simple pleasures in a society intent on the quest for wealth and fame. Despite an outward cynicism, Jamie is a romantic at heart, and, when not immersed in a book, can mostly be found writing emotional stories where young men from all walks of life are thrust headlong into the breathless, euphoric, often painful whirlwind called love.

  1. I absolutely love when the author make a playlist for their characters! (And it has nothing to do with the fact that I started my new project with making a playlist for one of the characters…I promise 😁)

  2. Hi, Jamie! I’m afraid that I’m not into much metal & rock music. But I can really appreciate a good song when I hear one. Currently, I can’t stop singing Too Good at Goodbyes by Sam Smith. I love ’em emotional. 😉
